Leadership with Jess Dewell, Tom Reid, and Jenn Tsang

Effective Leadership creates impact, which is my October theme! Exceptional leaders Jess Dewell, Tom G Reid, and Jennifer Tsang joined me for an insightful #GoalChatLive on the topic. We discussed the attributes of leaders, the challenges of developing leaders, the future of leadership, and much more.
Are leaders born or made? Our experts agree it’s both. The starting point for developing leadership – or really any – skills is choosing yourself. Discover your why, your mission, Take one step at a time, hone your skills, and learn from the people – and experiences – you encounter.

Leadership and Impact

  • Tom: Become the best possible version of yourself
  • Jenn: Learn so you can teach others. And take care of yourself, your mental health
  • Jess: Build stamina for recognizing assumptions and be creative with solutions

Leadership Goals

  • Jenn: Create an intention around staying curious. Explore and enjoy the journey of what piques your interest
  • Tom: Write down five things you believe in. Then write a paragraph of why you believe it. Your leadership journey has to center around your beliefs. This will motivate you to fix things.
  • Jess: Say “No” more often, so you can double the time you spend in your Present Retreats
